Ofsted Report

OFSTED is a well-known regulator where the care of children and young people is concerned. In brief, Ofsted monitors, observes, reports on and provides recommendations for educational settings. The school was inspected in November 2023. This is just one of the comments taken from the report.

"The school has a highly ambitious curriculum that enables all pupils to be extremely successful. From the moment that children join the Reception Year, they benefit from an aspirational and carefully considered curriculum. The early years staff are very skilled in teaching the curriculum and meet the needs of children well ... pupils readily build on what they have learned as they progress through key stage 1 and key stage 2 .. By the end of Year 6, pupils have an exceptional level of knowledge which prepares them well for the demands of key stage 3."
